Where do the ridges on shoes come from?

…that spot on the dress shoes.  Just before the leather meets the shoe bottom.

You see the stitches meet to hold the shoe together in some designs here.  Othertimes, you see this interesting ridge pattern.  I found an old tool used to do that on Bruce Johnson’s page.

Bruce Johnson’s page describes the item as …

5936 – unmarked #11 narrow fudge wheel – $20.00
